This auction is for 84 original TV21 Corgi advertisements (dated 1965-70).
With a career in graphic design, it is no surprise that this collector developed a sustained interest in period Corgi advertisements. They encapsulate so much of the enthusiasm and creative inspiration that resulted in some of the iconic Corgi models that we remember and wish to own either for the first time now as adults or buy again, and perhaps this time relive the enjoyment of owning that must-have toy from our childhood. Nothing quite captures the mood of the time like the advertisements that ignited our wish to own James Bond’s Aston Martin, that exciting Chipperfields Gift Set, the remarkable Batmobile, the amazing Silverstone Set, the musical Wall’s Ice Cream Van, etc. etc. The list is almost endless!
To assemble a collection of the advertisements from this period is no mean feat.
This meticulously presented Folder of TV 21 Corgi advertisements held us fascinated. A worthy accompaniment to any Corgi Collection, and a must-have piece for a dedicated Corgi collector.
Here are just some of the highlights in our opinion.
